Julio Rivas

I was born in Chicago, but my family moved into the Clark-Fulton neighborhood on Cleveland's Westside when I was in Jr. High. I attended Lincoln West for my freshman and sophomore years, then graduated from John Adams on Cleveland’s East side. Shortly after graduating High School, I heard the call of Jesus and decided to follow Him. I know firsthand how this decision can impact every area of a kid’s life, like  it did for me. Today, God’s call on my life is to engage young folks in the same urban context where I grew up. I want to live out my faith in transparency and authenticity in a way that attracts them to Jesus. I am excited to announce that I’ve joined the City Life team as a Ministry Director! The City Life Center is a great avenue for me to be able to do just that in the neighborhood that helped shape who I am today. I am super excited to be a part of the team!
